During this two-week long work in progress, he will complete several large wall murals for Primo piano d’Artista [Artist Focus], curated by Alessandra Galasso. The show will be presented as a performance involving the artist who will interact with his work and with the audience. It’s a significant event where street art meets the institutional world of a prestigious museum. For the very first time in Italy a national collection has decided to acquire a work of street art.
Ozmo is viewed as a pioneer of our times. He’s an artist with deep roots in the academic tradition, but who has also made a seminal contribution to Italian street art. He’s a fine performer capable of astonishing outdoor works, big murals and installations all of which have a sophisticated style and deep contents including powerful iconography, strong tributes to the history of figurative art, alchemy and sacred art, as well as every kind of symbol so far used by humankind.
Spectators have a fundamental role in this experience. Ozmo calls upon us to see through the lines, to read, feel and play with our own perceptions.
